Just thought about getting something in the front end of a cap forget that too, when I can just open the back door

a mistake (not about Oprah, but the jeep) IMO, or at least worth reconsideration.

I commute in a '13 wrangler unlimited 96 miles/day and it's comfortable as anything and gets decent mileage with the new engines.

Rides GREAT on the beach as well.

I'm no spring chicken at 56 either.

Well I had a dodge 2500 and never had a problem. Like Frank said I too had a good teacher.( Thanks Jess ) Air down and use low range don't hit the gas OR brakes hard and don't turn too sharp and you will be fine. I would say a full size p/u you have plenty of room for all the goods in the back. If you need a rack for the front I still have mine for sale.

Yes you are I've got 20 years on you LOL. It's just my opinion I've owned four wheel drive cars and trucks since 1958, all but dodge never went there,
the old full size blazer was a beast.

Drug smugglers get very creative.
